  • 846TS Test Programs - Dispenser Systems Testing

    Dispenser Systems Testing This category of testing encompasses the dispensing or launching of rocket-powered weapons, the dissemination of bomblets, flechettes, submunitions, and the dissemination of powder-like substance from payload carriers mounted on test sleds in a dynamic environment.
  • 846TS Test Programs - Blast and Impact Lethality Testing

    Blast and Impact Lethality Testing Missile warheads, bombs, hit sensors, penetrators, and hit-to-kill interceptors have been subjected to impact testing against stationary inert and live munition targets at speeds ranging from 3000 to 9500 ft/sec. Targets for both inert and live munitions can be installed in an area where the track has a
  • 846TS Test Programs - Blast Effects Testing

    Blast Effects Testing Blast effects on moving sleds are conducted with high-explosive detonations. The objective of blast testing at the track is to simulate an explosive blast shock-wave intercept on full-scale reentry vehicles, components of aircraft, missiles, and aerospace systems during supersonic and hypersonic flight. Charges equivalent to
  • 846TS Test Programs - Crew Escape Systems Testing

    Crew Escape Systems Testing Tests of ejection seats, extraction seats, and crew escape modules for a variety of aircraft have been conducted in excess of 700 Knots Equivalent Air Speed (KEAS). These tests have included development, qualification, and compatibility tests. A Multi-Axis Seat Ejection (MASE) sled permits a new approach to ejection seat
  • 846TS Test Programs - Missile Launch

    Missile Launch Experimental missiles have been launched from the Air Launch Sled while on the track under dynamic conditions. For experimental missiles, tests have included propulsion, guidance, and homing systems. Other similar tests have also included cross-wind firings.
  • 846 TS Hypersonic Upgrade Program

    The Air Force's 846th Test Squadron conducted a world record rocket sled test on the Holloman High Speed Test Track (HHSTT) at 0033 on 30 April 03. The sled obtained a velocity of 9,465 feet per second or 6,453 miles per hour, delivering a 192-lb. payload into a target. The test culminated the Hypersonic Upgrade Program (HUP) which began in 1998.
  • 846TS Magnetic Levitation (MAGLEV) Sled Track Capability

    The Holloman High Speed Test Track Maglev project is a long-term program to provide a new test capability for the DoD and the nation. The goal is to provide a low vibration environment for payloads on rocket-propelled sleds for speeds from subsonic to Mach 10. There are four demonstrative flight tests that will verify the Maglev project's sled
  • F-117A - Nighthawk

    Mission The F-117A Nighthawk is the world's first operational aircraft designed to exploit low-observable stealth technology. This precision-strike aircraft penetrates high-threat airspace and uses laser-guided weapons against critical targets. Features The unique design of the single-seat F-117A provides exceptional combat capabilities. About the
